I am so impressed.The fun part of working on the street with snowflakes falling ( very pretty , BTW. ) is how easily you get distracted by neighbours seeing that you are working and want to yap .
Pulled clutch lever assembly using my new Genuine Norton gearbox lock ring tool . The ball 04 0031 , I'm somewhat sure then fell on the ground and proceeded to roll on the pavement straight to the nearest sewer grate , 4 ft. away . Fun and games . Looks like I'll be adding it to the new Walridge order tonight . Sprayed with storage seal and bungee corded a plastic bag tight over the inner cover . Oh yes , the kickstart shaft when pulled back and forth after removing the kicker spring moved in and out quite a bit so I will now be shimming it up tighter as per. the Old Britts article . In the spring . Double covered up bike . Big blizzard tomorrow , then Nicaragua . Grateful for the weather up to now . Global Warming .
Working on your bike in the street in near freezing temps!
I’ve been there of course, a lot, but years of a heated shop and bike lift have clearly made me soft.
My fingers hurt just by reading your posts !
